He's one photo of all the papers Lou had with him. This photo, BTW - as well as the other two of Lou was taken with my Sprint PCS camera phone. I had fogotten my usual digital camera that I've been using. Posted by Hello

Here's a close-up on Lou's papers. Every page is marked up - scribbled on - has post-it notes attached. How Lou keeps it all straight, I'll never know. Again, this photo taken my my camera phone, so it's a little more blurry than usual. Sorry. Posted by Hello

Thanks to Lou Ricciuti for his appearance on Dialog on Wednesday. While I can understand Lou's frustration in getting the media to believe him, I'm glad they didn't - cause it means that WLVL broke a really important story. Posted by Hello

Klayman for US Senate
Larry Klayman is talking with us this morning about Farenheit 9/11. He says it both fair ... and unfair. A little later, my friend and fellow journalist Chuck Richardson is going to explain why Moore's just as bad as those he's condemning.

Monday's guest, Jim Duncan, chairman of the WNY chapter of the Working Families Party, proved to be as witty as he was pleasant. Jim, thanks for coming on. I look forward to talking to you again. Posted by Hello

Thanks to Lockport Mayor Mike Tucker for his willingness to appear on Dialog monthly. While nothing earth-shattering came out of Friday's visit, it's nice to know that he's around when we need him. Tuck, I agree with the Union-Sun on the accessability issue. You're doing a good job. Posted by Hello

Cheney says remarks to Democrat were "long overdue." It's good to know that we elected some moral leadership. I thought these people were supposed to "restore dignity" back to the White House.

Unfortunately, Libertarian presidential candidate Michael Badnarik had to cancel his appearance on this morning's show ... but that's okay - O'Reilly cancelled on him. No, really, it's alright cause he'll be on for the full hour come July 7th.

Thanks to Teresa Martinez, managing editor of the Niagara Gazette for being Wednesday's guest on Dialog. Teresa said she'd gladly return in the future ... and I think I speak for the majority of you when I say, "We'll gladly have you back, Teresa." That is a copy of Wednesday's Gazette she's reading, BTW (just prior to the start of Wednesday's show). Cramming for the exam, if you will. Posted by Hello

MSNBC
Who Was Really In Charge? I understand that in Michael Moore's new movie, Farenheit 9/11, the question of Bush's response to the terror attacks of Sept. 11 is made. Did Bush hang out to read childrens' books that day cause he wasn't told to do otherwise by Cheney? Was Bush completely clueless about what to do? This MSNBC article furthers that idea. Oh yeah - as a member of the liberal media, I'm duty-bound to tell you to go see Moore's movie. It comes out Friday.

Michael Badnarik - 2004 Libertarian Party Presidential Candidate. He'll be a guest on the show on Thursday from 9:30 to 9:45 to talk about his Libertarian Party victory and his previous night's engagement from the O'Reilly Factor. He'll be back on July 7th for an entire show to discuss his plans and philosophies more in-depth.

Thanks to Glenn Aronow (on the left) and Rick Updegrove for their continued willingness to come on Dialog and answer questions from their constituents. We might not agree on things politically, but they deserve kudos for standing up for themselves. Posted by Hello

Reagan New Face On $10 Bill? Conservatives targeted the dime last year ... but FDR still has too many fans, so now they're going after the $10 bill. Alexander who? What do you think about this? I don't disagree that Reagan could be on some monitary note ... but why don't we create a new one for him? No, really.
Honest Abe? Or Gay Abe?
If you read yesterday's Union-Sun & Journal and, while reading Bill Wolcott's column, said, "When did Scott Leffler say Abe Lincoln was gay?" - well, here's the column I do it in. If the thought of Lincoln being gay offends you, does that say more about Lincoln ... or you?

Seems my friends at Greater Niagara News got new websites ... hosted by the Indiana division of Community Newspapers Holding, Inc. They look pretty slick. Too bad the URL on the Gazette's page spells Niagara wrong ... note: niagra.cnhiindiana.com ... oops.

Oh, and notice on the "where to buy a paper" page:
SINGLE COPY LOCATIONS Dan's Grocery Store
267 & Dan Jones Rd
Townville, IN 46123

Are you kidding me? Indiana?!?! John Raymond couldn't even get one in Lockport this morning.

Hers's to hoping they outgrow their "new website" growing pains quickly.

Denise Young, managing editor for the Union-Sun tends to take a lot of flak when she's on the show. I'm glad she comes on anyway. We'll bring the folks from the US&J on again soon. Hope you caught the show. It was a good one. Posted by Hello

Tim Marren, city reporter for the US&J. I don't envy the man. His job is very difficult. He added a lot to Wednesday's show. Thanks Tim. Posted by Hello

Anne Calos, features editor for the Union-Sun & Journal on the show Wednesday. Relatively quiet as usual. Posted by Hello

Our congressional "leaders" voted on a Constitutional amendment last week. Don't you think that's the kind of thing you'd like to KNOW about? Sad thing is, one of them even voted YES ... click to see who.

Thanks to Al Norman for his appearance on Dialog yesterday ... and for his presentation at the Best Western (soon to be Holiday Inn). But I personally believe that Mr. Norman is selling fear ... and his equations don't equate ... and I don't buy fear.  Posted by Hello

Here's an interesting little tidbit about an artist suspected of being a terrorist ... and the Patriot Act (which Bill O'Reilly loves so much) plays a neat part. Have a good read.

Here's a very interesting poll by Zogby showing Kerry with leads in most of the "battleground states." Now granted, it's still early, but this is interesting, nonetheless.

Thanks to John Cole and Shirley Urtel for being guests on Dialog on Wednesday to discuss Mount View. Although the program got a little heated at times, I thought it went well, overall. BTW, I'm going to assume that you know that John is the one on the left. :)
